Fun for the whole shamily

Post by Simon. »

New question! Not because I thought it was good, but because you need a question.

You are the captain of a team of basketball players. You are on a court with them in the middle of a game. Your other team members are -

Bontta - Big guy, possibly Serbian, awful at basketball, can't bounce without focusing his entire life on keeping it going. Loses the ball a lot. But is incredible at getting rebounds. (fouls - 4)
Dwight - Small guy, cute, red hair, quite possibly gay. He's not too bad at basketball, has a natural aptitude, but has never trained, and is only playing because him mum wants him to get out there and toughen up. His heart is not in it. (fouls - 0)
Doris - She's the one out to prove that women can play sports just as well as men. They can't. She's doing a horrible job and has managed to get pregnant since the game started. (fouls - 1)
Tom Cruise - great basketball player, but a bit of a showboater, also keeps telling you Xenu is helping him, and that Minority report was a great movie. It was pretty good Tom, NOT GREAT. (fouls - 3)
DAAAAAAVOOOO - Davo is everybody's friend, unfortunately he can't play basketball for shit. Awful at every possible facet of the game, and any attempt by him to get near the ball will result undoubtedly in the other team scoring in seconds. This is why he is on the bench. Ready and eager to sub on for any reason. Also he is your lift home. (fouls - 1 (for yelling))

Note: Your teammates attributes are non-negotiable, so no "AND SUDDENLY THEY WERE ALL BASKETBALL GODS"

As the game stands it is 3 quarter time, the opposing team are all averaged skill, and pretty generic, they don't look in the mood for any trouble, just out to play a nice friendly game of basketball. They are also beating you quite severly. You blame this on DAAAAAVOOOOO even though he's been on the bench the whole time. Still your fault Davo. Note that if Davo does not get on the court for some noticeable time, he will not give you a lift home.

This is a standard basketball game, with the rules being non-negotiable. You can't have more than 5 players on at once, and if a player gets 5 fouls, they are fouled off and cannot come back on. The scoring system is standard basketball scoring, 2 points per goal, 1 for a free-throw, and 3 for a shot from outside the 3 point line. The scoring system is non-negotiable as well, No "AND THE SHOT COUNTS FOR 5 BILLION POINTS".

The scores are 13 (you) to 46 (them). You have 11 minutes left in which to finish the game with some ounce of credibility. As team captain, the players are relying on you to get them out of this somehow.

What's your battle plan?
Not a big fan of signatures.

Sounds to me like davo is a real person that simon knows.

A tough one... Well, don't blame me if I make an entire short story (or not so short story...) as my answer. So many interrelationships to play out...

Phew, finished and submitted. I went more than a little insane with my level of detail, though...

But that's just because everyone knows those details.
